Sunggyu - Gone

Infinite in casual clothing is a beautiful sight to behold.
How cute was Sunggyu motioning for his ideal girl Woohyun to do the Scorpion dance then Dongwoo coming over to join him then they both running back to their positions? Dongwoo not dancing/moving in any way during a song is like expecting a green sunrise; improbable, illogical and really just downright unnatural.

Edit: Added Sunggyu's performance (and he's absolutely amazing!)

Completely Newsworthy Post: BoA likes 'em big

Netizens have been chuckling over a hilarious photo BoA shared through her Twitter.

It was announced on Dec. 31 that SHINee, an idol group that has led this year’s Korean Wave, will become new faces for Maypole in 2011. Maypole, a casual wear brand for European Neo-preppy looks, is one of the fashion brands led by IN THE F, a leading total fashion company in Korea.

A source in the company said that they chose SHINee, Korea’s top idol group, as new models with name value, star quality, and fashion sense to appeal the brand’s neo-preppy image to the public as well as to increase sales and expand the business.

Maypole also selected Yi Som, a model called “2nd Jang Yoonjoo” as a new face in addition to SHINee. They plan to maintain the existing customer base by continuing the brand’s comfortable everyday wear style with Yi Som, while securing new teen customers through an aggressive star marketing using SHINee.

Korean media gets TMZ on KARA; bbs mobbed at the airport

On the evening of February 13th, all five KARA members returned to Korea via Kimpo Airport after filming in Japan for their new drama, “URAKARA“.

Their schedule had eased up for a little while, so they decided to come back to Korea for 2-3 days before heading back to Japan. Unfortunately, the girls were immediately ambushed by the media as soon as they appeared in the arrival hall; it’s said that there was much pushing and shoving before the girls safely reached their vehicle.
Because of the high media interest revolving around the girls’ unresolved controversy, it seems that their agency, DSP Media, opted to keep KARA’s activities low-key for now. According to the agency’s representative, KARA’s domestic schedules for the next 2-3 days are still being coordinated.

The representative revealed, “No schedule has been confirmed as of yet, but I am not sure how the domestic schedules will be organized.”
Member Park Gyuri had previously returned to Korea on the 10th for a press conference of her upcoming animated movie, “Alpha & Omega“. During the conference, she addressed the rumors of her being a ‘loner’. “It’s not true. We are all getting along well – to the point that the fact that I need to even explain is funny.” It was revealed that she returned to Japan that night after finishing all her schedules.

dream high wants to serve you a blowjob in a club

The fan favorite drama Dream High has been under the spotlight for the past few weeks for its star-studded cast list, but it looks like a few amused fans have noticed a few intriguing details completely unrelated to the storyline.

On the set of Samdong’s club scene in Episode 11, a list of ten shooters (alcoholic mixed drinks) is written on a large white board for 5000 won (~$4.44 USD). The list includes –excuse me for the language– “abortion,” “blowjob,” “brain hemorrhage,” “blue sky,” “Freddy Kruger,” “hard dick,” “quick fuck,” “rocket fuel,” “suicide” and “tequila slamma,” complete with the alcoholic recipes written on the side.

The hilarious part is that all of the shooters mentioned on the list are actual mixed drinks; as I’m sure our older readers know, it wouldn’t be difficult to find a bartender making these at bars, lounges or clubs in both the States and Asia. Furthermore, alcoholic drinks with offensive names are the norm, such as “pink pussy,” “slippery nipple,” and, my personal favorite, “sex on a beach.”

Although this only appears briefly and oblivious Korean viewers probably wouldn’t understand it anyway (after all, this detail was discovered by international fans — the screenshot was originally posted on Tumblr), it’s pretty surprising that something like this would be deliberately created for the set then put on broadcast. Yet despite its minuteness, I think it’s unnecessary to expose Korean viewers to such profane English words when it could be easily avoided. Props for the accuracy, at least!

In the short film, both Eunjung and Kim Soo Hyun play dancers While Kim Soo

out with Kim Soo Hyun’s character, she frets that her injury will prevent
her from dancing. She then takes the opportunity to ask him if dancing is his

What you should do for the 2012 Shinhwa 10th album

We're certainly dreaming of our 10th album.
But the strange thing is...
Some people don't want that to happen.
We could be affected by those people without our knowing it.
It's a scary thing to happen.

You must deliver the same messages you gave me to the other members too.
That you said you want to see the six of us on stage before you cheer for me.

So that even if some fool comes to us and wants us to go on alone, we will still fulfill our dream without wavering,
so that we can each concede some for each other and wait for that dream.
So that we can each gather our strength for Shinhwa's 10th album.

And you have to make it clear that you won't forgive us if we go our separate ways.
You have to make us wake up periodically so that we don't become like the fools who tempt us.

Like we never forget that we are 'members of Shinhwa,'
you must not forget that you are our 'supporters' and also our 'watchers.'

It's not that anything's happened,
it's just that my friends refused to meet me on Sunday evening because tomorrow's Valentine's Day,
so it just popped up in my mind!

Korean dramas stream into America

A scene from the smash-hit series “Secret Garden” from SBS

NEW YORK — Korean fans hooked on American dramas, or “mideu” as they call it, know that it’s only routine to stay up all night with bloodshot eyes and at least half a dozen episodes queued up on the playlist.

Well, guess what? The love is becoming reciprocal as Korean dramas, too, are slowly starting to find their way into the hearts of American viewers.

“NCIS and CSI are good, but this is action drama at a whole new level. It’s one of those shows where you promise yourself ‘just one more episode’ and you end up watching the sun come up,” says Rick Stone, 32, referring to the KBS hit “Iris.”

A newcomer to the world of Korean drama, Stone admits the newfound hobby is beginning to take its toll on his work during the day.

On Hulu.com, an online portal that streams TV shows and movies, it’s easy to find people with the same addiction.
